vomiting after taking daily threatment
Aug 6, 2010

you have taken your HIVmedication and are vomiting (even for unrelated reasons) a little bit later, what about the effectiveness of the dose? have to take again?

Response from Dr. Henry

That is a particular concern if you are throwing up pills or pill fragments which would suggest you are not absorbing the medications. Taking with food often can help certain of the HIV meds be better tolerated. Generally important not to miss many doses but if you use up month supply by having to take extra doses frequently due to nausea that is a challenging problems. There are some anti-nausea meds available that may help. I strongly suggest discussing with your HIV doc to see if there is some other explanation for the nausea and what your treatment options are.
